jilllao Perhaps my favorite part about this dress is that it was designed with a long evening skirt to go with its waves and curves. I'm a strong believer in investing in pieces that last a long time, pieces that can be mixed and matched with a multitude of options. And so I design with this in mind too: how many ways can I wear this? How can I enjoy this (hopefully) forever?

This mini dress goes from day to night to after-party with the right accessories and mood ;) And the long skirt may be easily paired with a t-shirt or an embellished bustier.

jilllao It's all in the details: navy eyelet neckline and linen panels exude a timeless, relaxed elegance.

jilllao I probably wanted to give up some 20,324 times while conceptualizing, drawing, draping, cutting, notching, sewing, and pressing my thus-far most complicated garment, and I'm nothing but thankful for Him who gave me strength! Through His word, His cheerleading, and lots of encouragement from friends, I celebrate this dress. #philippians413 #fashiondesign #fashion #parsons #patternmaking #summerstartsnow 6d

jilllao Today was such a beautiful sunshine-y day to debut my gingham crop top + separate peplum, which I made last semester. Can't wait to try them with other outfits. Thank you @salsaqn for the photo #fashiondesign #nofilter #gingham #nyc #personalstyle 1mon

jilllao It felt like we were back to winter today, and I needed to pinch myself seeing these gorgeous, vibrant blooms are actually where empty branches once stood. God is a God of fulfilled promise. He is faithful despite the cold and emptiness we all sometimes feel #prayerworks #onlyJesus #blessed #flatiron #nyc 2mon
